You can participate in EuroMUN as a Head Delegate. This implies that you will participate in EuroMUN as a regular delegate, while being in charge of organizing the attendance to the conference form a delegation. Essentially, a head delegate participates to the conference and logistically leads a delegation.
Before the conference, the head delegate should be organizing various meetings for delegates to research, share information, and work on position papers. It is important that the head delegate, assists new delegates in the process to ensure good preparation and high academic standards. Head Delegates should also make sure that all members of the delegation have figured out their accommodation and transportation to the conference, received an allocation and study guides.
During the conference head delegates need to check in their delegation, meet with their delegates to answer questions, make sure that all is proceeding smoothly and collect any possible feedback. The secretariat will then organize Head Delegates Feedback Sessions that the head delegates will need to attend, where all the feedback can be reported and tackled. The Head Delegates during the conference are the point of reference of the secretariat to communicate with all the participants. They also need to take care of the logistics of their delegation at the conference: know where their delegates are, communicate to them where things will be, and generally make sure that all is running smoothly.
